ROTEX GCU compact. Optimum DHW hygiene - day after day
State of the art - the integrated stratified cylinder.
Hot and fresh water is indispensable for every household. Whether for showering, bathing, cooking or hand washing. Having hot water available in the desired volume and at the desired temperature is a significant constituent of our modern life. The fact that this water is also hygienic is, of course, a prerequisite. Conventional hot water heaters often fail to meet these requirements today. We have therefore placed special emphasis on water hygiene!
The anti-legionella thermal store.
The structure of the ROTEX thermal store ensures optimum water hygiene since the water to be heated is carried in a pipe system. Deposits of sludge, rust, sediments and even the generation of dangerous legionella bacteria which can arise in large volume tanks are not possible. The outstanding water-hygiene advantages have been confirmed by an extensive test undertaken by the Hygiene Institute at the University of Tübingen. Resulting from its design concept, it guarantees large volume storage tank capacities with outstanding water hygiene and thus is fundamentally different from previous commonly used large-volume hot water storage tanks. Because you should not have to compromise with your health.
There are approx. 35 types of legionella. At least 17 of these are pathogenic. The most common consequences are: Pontiac fever: symptoms similar to flu which improve after a few days. Legionnaire's disease: severe bacterial lung infection. The infection is fatal in 15 to 20 percent of cases.
